A Conversation with Astrid Preston at Museum of Ventura County Sunday, March 17, 2019 3 to 4:30 p.m.
Astrid Preston has been called “one of America’s most important contemporary landscape painters.” Her evolution as an artist is impressive, spanning over five decades of expression from her early days assisting her father, an architect, which influenced her linear drawings, to exploring the myriad of contemporary art movements. Her work has been exhibited in respected galleries and is held in notable museums throughout the United States and abroad. To learn more about Astrid, visit www.AstridPreston.com.
